• Brownsburg seeks Indy 500 memorabilia for new exhibit

    April 28, 2011 No comments

    Brownsburg is one of several communities competing for a $25,000 prize in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s “Back Home Again in Indiana” community decorating contest celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500.

    As part of its entry, the town is seeking Indy 500 memorabilia to display in a special exhibit, “Capturing Memories, Honoring Traditions,” in Town Hall through the end of May. Residents and businesses who are interested in loaning framed photos, prints, posters, or similar collectibles may call Annisa Rainey at 858-6039.

    Residents and businesses can also compete to win Indianapolis 500 qualifications and race day tickets two ways: participate in the “500 Challenge” at Town Hall or decorate their home or business facade.

    Similar to the town’s fall “Build-A-Bale” contest, local fans can create a unique display on the Town Hall lawn recognizing the Indy 500’s 100th anniversary and honoring the Speedway’s icons and traditions. The winner of the “500 Challenge” will get reserved seat tickets for the 100th anniversary Indianapolis 500 on May 29.

    Decorated businesses and residences may also enter for a chance to win race day tickets. Prizes will be awarded at the Chamber’s Motorsports Celebration on May 21. Awards will be given to winners and runner-ups in each category.

    If chosen as the winner of the IMS “Back Home Again in Indiana” community decorating contest, Brownsburg will use the prize money to help fund future community improvement projects through the Brownsburg Community Matching Grants Fund in the Hendricks County Community Foundation.

    More information about how to participate is available online at www.brownsburg.org and www.brownsburg.com.
